20160612_145137Your reel will be completely disassembled. Parts will soaked in a strong solvent which helps to break up all the grit and grime that has built up in your reel. We will then hand clean and inspect each reel part. Then we will grease/lube the correct parts as it is reassembled. Each reel is tested to provide you with reliable equipment.  If any parts are needed because they are worn, broken or missing, Tom will contact you and advise of any cost. Prices are for repair and cleaning only and do not include parts, taxes, credit card fees, shipping and/or handling fees.

We carry many parts in stock. Click HERE to access the The Reel People Service Service Request Form. Please print, complete and mail us a form for each reel you are shipping.

If you send us a reel that is un-assembled, there is an additional $5 fee if it can be reassembled. If there are any additional fees involved, Tom will call you to discuss.
